We need healthy teeth to enable us to chew well, which is essential for proper digestion. Only if we make full use of our salivary glands will our food be properly assimilated and agree with us. There is a reason, then, why we have six large and many more small salivary glands, which secrete various alkaline substances that are of the utmost importance to the whole digestive process. If food particles are sufficiently insalivated, the later stages of digestion will be made much easier.

It is interesting to note that the teeth stay healthy if they are used correctly and given hard food to chew. This is exactly the pposite of what we know about other instruments, which usually wear out when used a lot. The pressure exerted when biting acts as a kind of stimulus for healthy teeth. The periodontal nerves transmit this stimulus to the blood vessels and more blood is supplied. The increased blood supply means better nutrition and guarantees constant regeneration of the tooth. Thus, anyone who eats hearty meals that force him to chew vigorously strengthens his teeth and keeps them healthy. On the other hand, if you get into the habit of eating primarily gruels, soup and soft food you miss the chance of forcing your teeth to be active and stimulated, laying the groundwork for later tooth decay. Apples are an excellent fruit to eat as they need chewing and their acidic juice also cleanses the teeth.

To keep physically healthy and fit, adopt a good and natural diet and take care that your teeth remain healthy and strong.



It will first be interesting to consider some of the arguments put forward by doctors of the highest calibre about some of the basic questions concerning cancer during a recent court case in Germany. How difficult it must be for judges to reach the right decision in such cases, especially when the views of specialists contradict each other! How can judges possibly be expected to make sense of it all?

Professor Bauer from Heidelberg, a famous and respected expert in the field of cancer, maintained that cancer is a localised disease and can therefore be tackled by means of the scalpel and radiation, that is, by surgery and radiotherapy, with varying degrees of success. However, two other well-known surgeons, Dr Albrecht and Professor Zabel, expressed opposing views. In common with many others, they were of the opinion ãÜ÷ã cancer is a disease affecting the whole system and that with the surgical removal of a tumour the actual disease is only partially treated, let alone curecL The great number of deaths that occur during the first year after an operation, in spite of radiotherapy, seem to speak out strongly in favour of this second view. A further aspect may be added, for it is thought that certain materials leave the malignant tissues, enter the bloodstream and lymph and, of course, the cells. This has a detrimental, if not poisoning, effect. According to this opinion, we can conclude that it is not only migrating cancer cells but also these separate materials that can lead to metastases in the course of time. The American school of thought seems to support this opinion. However, the available literature is not clear on whether the detached and circulating materials are in fact the same as those viruses discovered first by Dr Nebel of Lausanne and later by Professor von Brehmer.
